pHinn knows where the goodies are! Below his post on YouTube.com:As promised, some personal pHavourites of pHinn found from the amazing YouTube video archives. We'll start from the 1960s... Enjoy!
Music (promo clips -- which were still relatively rare in the 60s -- and live cuts):
The Animals: We Gotta Get Out of This Place
Brigitte Bardot: 'Harley Davidson' (1968). Hmmm... And here's more BB.
Syd Barrett / early Pink Floyd:
'Astronomy Domine' (live at Beat Club)
Syd Barrett/The Pink Floyd: London '66-'67. A 31:30 clip taken from Peter Whitehead's film Tonight Let's All Make Love In London: Syd and Floyd in studio, performing 'Interstellar Overdrive', some peeks into the Swinging London with mod/hippie underground action....
'Strawberry Fields Forever'
'A Day in the Life'
'Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds'
clips from Yellow Submarine
Jane Birkin & Serge Gainsbourg: 'Je t'aime... moi non plus'. Gainsbourg was the enfant terrible of French pop (a pity this promo clip is quite not as hot as the often-banned song on it).
Blue Cheer: 'Summertime Blues' (live on Beat Club, 1968)
Buffalo Springfield: 'For What It's Worth'
Count Five: Psychotic Reaction
The Creation: live 1966
'Not To Touch The Earth'
Bob Dylan: 'Like A Rolling Stone'. A 1966 live rendition of the classic tune from Dylan's "Judas" period. Plus John Lennon & Bob Dylan in a taxi in '66
The Electric Prunes
Jefferson Airplane: 'White Rabbit' ("Go ask Alice)
'Dead End Street'
Love live on American Bandstand, 1967, featuring the songs 'Message To Pretty' and 'My Little Black Book'.
MC5: 'Kick Out The Jams' (live 1969).
'Boys Are Boys'. Live on Beat Club, 1966.
Nico: 'I'm Not Saying'
The Pretty Things: 'Midnight To Six Man' (on BBC, featuring a funny teen advice segment + 'Midnight To Six Man' @ Beat Club
Procol Harum: 'A Whiter Shade of Pale'
Question Mark & The Mysterians: '96 Tears' (live on Where The Action Is, 1965).
The Rolling Stones:
'Jumping Jack Flash' (1968 promo clip)
Os Mutantes. The Brazilian "Tropicalia" band.
Nancy Sinatra: 'These Boots Are Made For Walking'
Sly and the Family Stone: 'Dance To The Music' & 'I Wanna Take You Higher' (on Ed Sullivan Show, 1968)
The Smoke: 'My Friend Jack'. A notorious freakbeat song ("My friend Jack eats sugarlumps") on West German Beat Club TV show.
'Ain't Too Proud To Beg'
The 13th Floor Elevators: 'You're Gonna Miss Me'. Live on American Bandstand, 1966.
Velvet Underground: 'Sunday Morning'
'I'm A Man'
'Train' Kept A-Rollin''. A version of a Johnny Burnette song.
'Stroll On'. This clip is taken from Michelangelo Antonioni's seminal "Swinging London" film Blow-Up (1966), with a rare line-up of Yardbirds featuring both Jeff Beck and Jimmy Page. 'Stroll On' was basically a version 'Train Kept A-Rollin' with new lyrics. Note how bar the lonely dancing couple, the crowd is strangely apathetic here (as if they are all stoned), only getting active when Jeff Beck wrecks his guitar, and throws its neck to the audience. Michelangelo Antonioni originally wanted to have The Who here, but they weren't available.
On French TV, 1967: setlist includes 'Train Kept A Rollin'', 'Dazed And Confused' (which Jimmy Page's later band Led Zeppelin would make their own), and 'Goodnight Sweet Josephine'.
'Happenings Ten Years Time Ago'. My favourite Yardbirds song.
Finally, some film and TV stuff from the 60s:
Band of Outsiders by Jean-Luc Godard: a clip.
Batman: The Movie (1966). A clip from the movie made simultaneously with the popular TV show.
Breathless by Jean-Luc Godard. Scenes from the film accompanied by Stereolab's 'Miss Modular'.
Bullitt: the famous car chase scene.

And some psychedelic history for you:
